The Cadence CS6 match reel comes under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

THE new sub-£60 Cadence CS6 Match Reel, for float and feeder fishing, comes with a feature package that you would normally expect on a £90-plus design, report the team behind its design.

First impressions are that it looks pretty solid. Available in a 3000 and a 4000 size, it is built around a strong and corrosion resistant aluminium frame, and is supplied with two machined aluminium spools, one deep, and one shallow, taking 150 m of 0.28 mm (8 lb) and 110 m of 0.22 mm (4 lb) line respectively.

It comes with a fast 6.2:1 gear ratio, seven ball bearings and an instant anti-reverse bearing, and a carbon fibre front drag system.

Add the ergonomic EVA knob on the handle, a stainless steel main shaft and brass pinion gear and that’s an impressive package for the price.
